-=The Official Spriters Contest #1=-

Ok all, I think its about time us veteran spriters showed all the new guys what a real sprite contest should look like.

THIS WEEK'S THEME: EEVEELUTIONS!
Create an entirely new eeveelution, only with a catch. It cant be a type that already exists. Ie, it has to be a type other than the 17 that gamefreak have made up, whether that be light, or whatever. Good luck guys!

There is a panel of 2 judges, myself, and Bulletangel, and we shall judge each of the entries on the following three criteria, Style, Colour, and Originality. Each progressive round will have a different theme/objective, aimed at highlighting a particular skill. The rounds and judging will also get tougher as the contest goes on so that we may be completely sure of who is truely the sprite champion of PE2K.

Each round will last for one week, opening on a monday, closing for entries on friday, and allowing 2 days for the judges to do what they're here to do and do it well.

Below is an explanation of each of the three catagories that we judge on:

Style - How the overall sprite looks/feels. Are all the limbs in the correct place? Not a horn sticking out of its stomach? Great. Also, whether or not it fits with the theme. Mark out of 10 and we move on.

Colour - How the sprite is on the eyes. Do the colors make sense? Is the shading perfectly wonderful? Does it make your eyes want to kill themselves (hopefully the answer is no)? DO THE COLORS MAKE SENSE? 'nuf said. Mark out of 10. Next!

Originality - How original is the sprite? Us judges have been around for a while, we've seen a lot of sprites. Is the pose original? Is the concept original? You will always score low in this area witha fusion, unless that is you are asked to make a fusion. Doubtful. A monkey can make a fusion. Mark out of 10. Wonderful.

And just a little bonus score from each of the judges out of 5. Basically just if we like the sprite or not. 5 - good, 0 - bad.

So each entry gets a score out of 35 from each judge, bringing it to a possible score of 70 - the perfect sprite. If anyone enters something even remotely similar to this (http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o176/ndtomb/retarded.jpg) I shall be seriously disappointed. At the end of the competition, each entrant will be awarded a trophy:

Participation - http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o176/ndtomb/blackmagikarp.png

3rd - http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o176/ndtomb/bronzesmeargle.png

2nd - http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o176/ndtomb/silversmeargle.png

1st - http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o176/ndtomb/goldsmeargle.png

Each judge will explain why they have given each particular score, and use only constructive criticism, explaining how we think the sprite could be improved if need be. Please do not be offended if what we say comes off in a negative light, we don't mean it to, we're just trying to help.

After each round, an as-yet-unknown-number-of-entrants will go onto the next round, and so on until we have our finalists. Trophies will be awarded to our top 3.

Other rules - No slamming other peoples entries, no complaining at your score, no gloating, and just be nice in general. normal PE2K rules of course. Judges reserve the right to remove entries from the competition if we feel you are disobeying these rules.

EDIT: When placing an entry, please use the following form:

Username: (your name)
Name: (name of the pokemon/entry)
Type: (what type is the pokemon)

I think that is all for the rules, if I have missed anything, PM me and I will add it in.

ROUND 4 IS NOW OPEN!

NB: The bottom entry for round 4 will be out of the competition.

Happy spriting everyone, and good luck!

PS. I am from Australia and as such will spell things the way we spell them here, eg. colour not color. I am not retarded, we just spell some words differently here.

I didn't mean it to come across as me saying that you all suck, I meant that I'm going to run this contest the way that they used to be run.

And Hyper Blaze, there's no point in putting in your entrant yet because the competition isn't open yet, and you don't know what the theme is yet (neither do I for that matter... should think of something), but thanks for filling out the form, sorry I should have put it up to begin with, but it just didn't cross my mind...

Happy spriting everyone

I would say there will be some scratching in this. Its certainly not going to be a competition of just revamps, recolours, and fusions, that's for sure. I can't stand fusions.

Oh, no it will just be normal scratching, just something that wouldn't look out of place next to a sprite from nintendo if you get what I mean, might be a few fake mons, I dunno, we'll see how it goes.

I'm going to put up the topic for this weeks round now, because for me, its only 20 minutes until monday anyway so we may as well get underway. Check the first post :biggrin:

Hahaha, she meant that she could not see the edit of the Contest. Incase you guys missed it, heres this week's task.

THIS WEEK'S THEME: An autumn/fall themed sprite. Can be anything from a holiday that falls in autumn (eg halloween), to an autumn-coloured version of a pokemon. Whatever you can think of as long as it fits to the theme of AUTUMN/FALL.

One entry per person, and I guess you can enter whatever you like,as long as it's a sprite and fits the theme...

And sorry about the colour, I use the silent ghost skin and kind of forget that all the other backgrounds are light...

That better?

Username: gun6
Name: Snood'd
Type: Magical Cow Pokemon (NORLY, LOOK AT IT)

http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b70/Gun6/Snoodd2.png

So yeah, it's a turkey Pokemon, and it's the evolution of Farfetch'd. It is also hunted as Farfetch'd is, but it also carries a cornucopia that is said to bring the holder abundance in anything they wish for. The "V" marks on its stomach are there because a.) Snood'd looks plain without them, and b.) Farfetch'd has a "V" on its forehead (most likely to symbolize anger), so I wanted some kind of relevance other than the held item and being hunted for sport/food.

D:

EDIT: Oh, and it's 100% scratch (but with colors from Fearow and Farfetch'd).

Edited Torterra. I made the tree's leaves smaller, and added fallen leaves to its shell(thats what the orange stuff is:redface:). I didn't turn the "grass" orange because it doesn't turn color. :tongue: And I made the "mountains" icy because it gets cold this time of year.

are you sure because people post their pixle overs on the general spriters showcase all the time?
And what is the difference from a PO and a scratch sprite?

Thanks for your entries everyone, the competition is now CLOSED. Judging will begin shortly.

Sorry I haven't been around much these last few days, my computer is at the shop getting fixed, so I'm just on my roommate's PC atm, so it might be a little while until I can get back on.

EDIT: My results.

Username: Ryan
Name: Flaroween
Type: A Halloween Flareon
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc59/Pikahero2/RecolorfoHalloween.png

Style: 4/10
I don't think its wings are really sitting in the right place, I think if they were mooved not kind of up its back the whole sprite could have looked much cleaner. Actually, when I looked closer, the wing on the right is positioned behind its tail... How does that work?

Colour: 4/10
While I don't really like the colours used, the shading is done well, then again, its a fusion so all you had to do was swap its colours... Also, I think its mane and tail could have done with being a different colour, black perhaps?

Originality: 3/10
I'm sorry but it's a fusion, and I did warn that they would score quite low in this field. It just doesn't really do it for me.

Bonus: 1/5
It's a fusion, and its not really done all that well either IMO, sorry.

Total: 12/35

Eeveedude, sorry but I'm going to have to accept your first entry, the second one is just too big to be considered a sprite.

Style: 3/10
You put a pirate hat on a pidgey for Thanksgiving...? Also, is its eye bleeding, or is that part of the hat?

Colour: 4/10
I'm sorry but you really haven't changed the colours of pidgey at all for this sprite, and the hat doesn't have an outline. I'd like to give you a higher grade but I just can't.

Originality: 3/10
Again, its a fusion, I can't give you a higher mark than this for a fusion.

Bonus: 3/5
On the whole, I actually quite like the sprite, it's just a shame I couldn't give you higher marks...

Total: 13/35

It all looks very good to me. Everything seems to be in proportion, there are no jagged lines, and this is a very believable evolution for Farfetch'd. My only objection is that I most probably would have made the beak a tiny bit londer myself, but it's your sprite and that is completely up to you.

Colour: 9/10
The colours used are perfect, and the shading looks spiffy. Nicely done.

Originality: 10/10
It's a fake pokemon, not like any of the ones that I've seen before, need I say more?

Bonus: 5/5
I like it! I could really see Snood'd being added as a real pokemon. Good work gun.

Personally I probably would have made all of the leaves fall off the tree, but that is of course up to you. Also, I think some of he leaves should have covered the roots of the tree, instead of falling in groups around them.

Colour: 5/10
The shading of the changed parts is done well, though I most probably wouldn'd have changed Torterra's body to that shade of orange, I think it's a little bit too bright.

Originality: 3/10
I'd like to give you a higher grade, but its really not that original, it was kind of what I was expecting a lot of people to do for an autumn theme, but I was hoping that less people would follow through with it.

Bonus: 3/5
I quite like Tortumn on the whole.

I think if you had only changed the colours of Leafeon to the red that you used, you would have scored next to nothing in this area, but I think the leaves are a nice addition, and they are well placed.

Colour: 5/10
I love the shade of red that you used, I think it has very good earthy tones for autumn, and the shading on the leaves is well done.

Originality: 3/10
Again, I would like to give you a higher grade, but it really was the kind of thing that I was expecting, and I was hoping that most people would stretch that bit further.

Bonus: 3/5
On the whole, a nice sprite, I like it.

It's put together well, the arms look great, it's just the antennae things on its head dont quite look right. I think if you had edited one of them, even only slightly, just so that they weren't symmectrical it would have turned out much better.

Colour: 2/10
You haven't really done anything with the colour...

Originality: 3/10
It's a fusion, they just aren't original anymore...

The colours are perfect, but the shading is really quite bad, why is there a light line on his lower right side?

Originality: 3/10
I'd like to give a higer mark but I swore to myself that I wouldn't give higher than 3/10 for a fusion, and while I realise that this is not a fusion as such, it stil l counts as one in my books

A perfect nidoking, and I love the detail in the leaves on the ground. I love how you haven't done is as a solid shape either if you get what I mean.

Colour: 9/10
Excelent choice of colours for the sky and the ground, and the shading on Nidoking is just about perfect.

Originality: 9/10
I would love to give you 10/10 for this but I don't think it would really be fair to the people to made a fakemon. Great effort though.

I really dont like the purple used, I think it would have looked much better and more autumn-ish it you had used a more earthy tone. Also, I think think its' leaves should be orange or yellow or something, not green.

Originality: 3/10
How does it differ from any of the other pokemon here who have lost leaves?

I got, lets see.....5th place? thats okay i guess. at least i got the above 20 mark.

EDIT: Just realized that this is not final judging. i still have a chance for a higher rank, but im pretty doubtful what with all the scratches.

Can't say I completely disagree with that. It's not really a fusion, I'd say more of a recolor. I didn't even add the stem, Castform has a little antannae thing. I'd classify it as a recolor though, nothing fused. I don't think I edited any of the shading though, and if I did, it's cause I'm not good at shading like that.:tongue:

I do have a question though. Why are some people's bonuses out of 10, and some out of 5?

Don't get me wrong I think its a wonderful sprite, perfectly done, the only reason that I took 2 points off for style was because it doesn't really, in my opinion, fit with the theme. Maybe if some of the leaves on its' back were orange? I dunno.

Wow, I'm amazed that I have 33/105 points so far... I thought that the Nidoking and Arbreraum would get more points...

Your sprite was great and it fit perfectly with the theme, there weren't many things that I could find to take points off on but if you'd like me to go over it again I can :tongue:. The only reason I didn't give BA full marks was because you, Calypso, and Spiffy entered fakemon. I love her sprite I think it is absolutely adorable.

I do have a question though. Why are some people's bonuses out of 10, and some out of 5?

Typo, it's all fixed now.

Username: Duo
Name: Sebastian the Crab
Type: Uh... a crab?
http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x127/CooltrainerDuo/SebastianScratch2.png

Style: 9/10
There's nothing really that I could fault you with here, everything is in proportion, and it all flows. Good job!

Colour: 9/10
The shading all looks very good, although I probably would have outlined his teeth a little bit more.

Originality: 10/10
It's Sebastian! In sprite form! Haven't seen it before I like it

Bonus: 5/5
It's a damn good sprite.

Total: 33/35

Username: Wandering Mew
Name: Don't have a name. >_< ...um, Snailano? XD
Type: Snail Fakemon (water/fire)
http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l25/lindz398/fakemon/snail.png

Style: 7/10
No major faults in any of the outlines or anything like that, but I think it could do with being a bit more fluid if you get what I mean...

Colour: 5/10
I'm not sure I would have used that shade of blue for its' body, but that of course is up to you, though there are a few areas that could do with better shading.

Originality: 10/10
I love the idea of this pokemon, I think it is highly original and very cool.

Bonus: 5/5
See above

Total: 27/35

Username: Eeveedude
Name:Mer"Me"
Type: Me as a merman.
http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa229/1eeveedude3/MerMe.png

Style: 5/10
I think the tail could have done with being much smoother than it is...

Colour: 5/10
I like the colours used, but there isnt any shading or outlining really on the tail...

Originality: 7/10
Well I haven't seen a merman sprite before, so that makes it original, however I have seen a lot of pokemorphs...

Bonus: 3/5
The bumpiness of the tail really brings this sprite down I feel

Total: 20/35

Username: gun6
Name: Bassagitar
Type: Bass Pokemon (Water/Steel)
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b70/Gun6/Bassagitarfin.png

Style: 10/10
This is a great sprite, no faults at all in anything that I can see

Colour: 9/10
The shading is really good, but I think it is a little light on its' body

Originality: 10/10
Certainly have never seen something like this before.

Bonus: 5/5
I <3 it

Total: 34/35

I love the background, I think that is done incredibly well. Although, I do think its' tail looks a bit detatched... PM me if you want to know what I mean

Colour: 10/10
Cannot fault you at all, perfect shading and background IMO

Originality: 10/10
It's cool, I havent seen a scene like this before.

Bonus: 4/5
I really like it, and I absolutely adore the background, but it's just that tail that is bringing it down...

Total: 33/35

Username: nickkk
Name: Slugtile
Type: Fusion/Scratch
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee62/nickkk1313/4base.png

Style: 3/10
Lumineons' tail fins don't look right, I think it's because they've been put behind the Seviper body... And I think it could have been made to suit the theme a bit more... I dunno

Colour: 3/10
There are some issues with the shading on Lumineon's fins, and on its' right claw, the angle of the light is wrong.

Originality: 4/10
While it is original for a fusion, it is still a fusion...

Bonus: 3/5
I do actually quite like this sprite on the whole, but I think there is quite a lot of work to be done on it before it's perfect.

Total: 13/35

Name:Gartanosaurus
Type: Urr... Underwater dinosaur/dragon Titanosaurus-cosplayer

Style: 8/10
I know it's kind of a fusion, but I really like this sprite and think it is done really well.

Colour: 10/10
I love the colours used, and the shading is great

Originality: 5/10
I would like to give you a higher mark than this, because I think it is quite original, but it is still kind of a fusion-thing...

Bonus: 5/5
<3 it

Total: 28/35

Username: Hyper Blaze
Name: Diver?
Type: A diver trainer
http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/9721/divarotk1.png

Style: 4/10
I think there is quite a bit of line work to be done, especially the bottom of his shirt thing.

Colour: 2/10
The fluro green is really not good... and there isn't any shading on the edited parts.

Originality: 5/10
Well I'm sure it's been done before but I havent seen it. Come to think of it how cool would it have been if in Ruby and Sapphire, you could battle divers underwater!

Bonus: 2/5
I think this sprite needs quite a bit of work....

Total: 15/35

Username: Bulletangel
Name: LeFailbot
Type: Water
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc290/deadlydisturbia123/tentacruel.gif

Style: 10/10
It looks great, all of the tentacles flow perfectly, it's body looks great, and I love the shape of the scene

Colour: 9/10
I think some of the tentacles could have done with a little bit more of an outline, but other than that, perfect again

Originality: 10/10
Never seen a scene like this before. I love the pose and I love the background.

Bonus: 5/5
Another wonderful sprite.

Total: 34/35

I...messed up on this one. x_x You see, when I scratch, I almost always (99% of the time) draw it in the second sprites position, then flip it over and shade. I was thinking of Absol's features when I drew it, And drew the spike and hair in the direction it would look at that angle. Unforunately, that doesn't work when its flipped over. >_< And I didn't realize it until I finished shading it. XP So judge whichever one looks best I guess.
